Millage Rate Hearings - July 15 & 22 - Henry County Schools

Henry County Board of Education to Host Millage Rate Hearings

HENRY COUNTY, GA – The Henry County Board of Education will host three meetings in the upcoming weeks regarding the adoption of the millage rate for the 2019-2020 school year. There is no proposed increase as the millage rate is already at its current limit of 20 mills. This rate has been in effect since 2007.

Using the same millage rate as the previous 12 years would result in more property tax revenue due to the recent increase in property values. There is a requirement for public hearings any time more property tax revenue is collected over the previous year.

All citizens are invited to the public hearings on the millage rate adoption and its effect on property taxes. The meeting dates, times, and address are as follows:

 

Monday, July 15, 2019, at 9 a.m.

Monday, July 15, 2019, at 6:30 p.m.

Monday, July 22, 2019, at 4:30 p.m.

 

Henry County Schools Administrative Offices

33 N. Zack Hinton Pkwy

McDonough, GA 30253

 

The final adoption of the millage rate is set for Monday, July 22, 2019, at 4:45 p.m.
